But does not man call to mind that We created him before out of nothing?

Tafsir

Does not man then remember (yadhdhakaru, is actually yatadhakkaru, but the taa' has been changed to a dhaal and assimilated with the [other] dhaal; a variant reading leaves it as yadhkuru) that We created him before, when he was nothing?, and thus infer from the first act [of creation] the [possibility of] resurrection.
